How To Make Free Capture Pages

Thu, Aug 5, 2010

Marketing Strategies

How would you like to learn how you can make your own Lead capture pages absolutely FREE! Not only that you can make these Capture Pages right from the comfort of your own WordPress blog!

I have made my own FREE Capture Pages and used them in my PPC (pay per click) campaigns, and I have found them to be very effective in capturing leads! And lets face it that’s what we all want in the home business industry is more leads.

Now there are plug-ins out there that you can install and they are very effective also, but they take a little more technical know-how and they usually cost money. I actually did a blogpost titled “How To Make Your Own Lead Capture Page”  12, July 2010 which featured one of these Capture Page plug-ins.

The beauty of making your own FREE Capture Pages is just that, they are FREE, and they don’t require much if any technical know-how to make them.

All you need to make your own FREE Capture Pages is a wordpress blog, and an autoresponder account.

So why not expand your marketing efforts and create your own FREE Capture Pages!

What I am going to do next is show you via screencapture video just how simple it is to do.

Also, when you are finished watching the video, if you have any questions, simply go over on the right side of my blog and you will see a big button that says “Got Questions Ask Me”, just click there and send me your question and I will be glad to answer it!

    Joseph,
    We love the screen capture video where you show everyone how to design their free lead capture page quick and easy with their Word Press plug-in. It’s such a nice plug-in and you’ve really shown how to get started with it.
    Let us know how many leads you’ve generated so far with your use of the free lead capture page. That will inspire even more to take advantage of this plug-in.
    Thanks for all your efforts. We and the TSA family appreciate it!

    Dawn & Dave, Suprisingly the Free page converts almost as good as the plugin page. I have captured about 50 leads with the free page so far. I have people in my downline using them and converting with them too! So they are very effective.
    The plugin page is better however because you get 4 different templates to work with, so it gives you more options and makes a more professional looking page.
    Thanks for your comment!

    Hello Joseph,

    Really great post! Informative, yet very easy to follow!

    I can see this really benefiting someone who is just starting out in the online world with their network marketing business, or any home business really.

    I think a lot of people aren’t aware that you can create such useful tools for free or at a very low price.

    Just yesterday I attended a webinar on how to make capture pages and it was about 5 times more complicated than your tutorial. You are cooking with gas Joseph! I will bookmark this page…had no idea it was so simple. Can you answer a question? You used the embed code from Youtube for that video code you entered?

    Sometimes the simplest things can be overcomplicated – and that’s why it’s a good reminder that KISS applies with making lead capture pages. Along those lines, it would be interesting to create a post on ten things you can use “Pages” for! Thinking out loud, here. I was intrigued by a comment you made in this thread that such pages converted as well as some of the more professionally prepared pages!

    Joe, since a capture page is such an important must have marketing tool and you have shown here so well how simple it is to create a free capture page, I must say your post is most valuable, especially to a newbie. It’s a good thing never to forget how frustrating the newbie stage can be. I’m drifting in and out of newbie stages all the time as I learn and put into action new marketing strategies. Thank you for this tip, I had no idea a capture could be created and put to work so easily and economically.

    Hi Joe,
    While I was on your site, I happened to see this post, as well. I, like most who have commented, had no idea that you could make Lead Capture pages from your WP blog!
    In the past I have subscribed to a LC system, but then could only use their form on the page, so my subscribers went to that system instead of a generic system like Aweber. And I could not use their sign-in form on my own pages, so I felt limited.
    I’ll have to bookmark and return to watch your training, but I definitely will do that!
    Thanks! Linda

    Hi Joseph,

    This was a good blog for me to read/watch. I don’t yet have a capture page, and didn’t have a clue of how to get one. Since I’m having FTP issues on WordPress right now, I’m still not ready to do the capture page, but thanks to your blog I at least have an understanding of how it’s done. I appreciated your video demonstration. Once I get my WordPress issues sorted through I’d like to come back and view this once again. Thanks for a really helpful post!

    Hi Joe,
    Great video on how to make A Capture Page.. I have been paying for a service for too long… I would like to do more professional ones as you mentioned and also would like to know the autoresponder you use.
    I am trying to eliminate some monthly fees and most of the AR are on a monthly fee… I am testing an AR now that I pay upfront for but there is a annual renewal to keep it up to date.
    Thanks again..

      Hi Cas,
      I use GetResponse for my autoresponders, good company, great customer support! I really think most autoresponder companies are very competative in terms of what they have to offer.

      Cas, I have spent some time developing a new product you might want to take a look at. It’s called “Capture Pages On A Budget”, you can make your own unlimited number of capture pages, quickly, easily, and best of all, inexpensively!
